Bright Al Fresco Wedding Day at Quail Ranch
Anyssa Clark and Mike Eden met on a blind date. In the parking lot of a local coffee shop, Anyssa watched as Mike got out of his car and, once he fully emerged, she couldn’t help but exclaim, “Whoa, you’re tall!”—and the rest is history. Quail Ranch met all the criteria for their wedding venue, with its beautifully landscaped front yard, picturesque ceremony space and incredibly hospitable staff. Anyssa originally adhered to the standard schedule for procuring her wedding dress. A year out, she was all set with what she thought was the perfect ensemble for her big day. However, a mere few months before the couple’s wedding date, Instagram scrolling got the better of her. She found her new perfect dress and couldn’t get it out of her mind. As fate would have it, that dress became available to ship from Australia—and in her size. But in another twist, her bridal salon had her try on a slightly different version of the dress, and Anyssa found herself welling up. “It was more perfect than anything I had ever seen, and I knew it was my dress, despite not being the one I had originally come to see,” says the bride. “And it had pockets!” The new dress was rush ordered and arrived from Down Under with a few weeks to spare, allowing Anyssa to be in her truly perfect gown when she and Mike exchanged “I dos” among friends and family in a sunlight-drenched celebration. A simple palette of delicate pinks and whites, accented with wood tones, let the natural beauty of the venue shine through and set the scene for the couple’s love-filled afternoon.
